How do eject disc from my mac os x


Every Mac that has an optical drive has an eject key on the keyboard. Pressing the eject key will eject a CD or DVD.

The eject key has this icon on it: ?

You can also right-click on the disk icon, then choose "Eject" from the pop-up menu.

You can also click once on the disk icon, then choose "Eject" from the File menu.

You can also drag the icon to the Trash icon in the dock.

The eject key will only eject CDs and DVDs, but all of the other methods described above will also unmount other media types, like a hard drive or flash drive connected via USB, FireWire, or Thunderbolt.

Mac Repair Disk


Mac OS Repair

To run Disk Utility on apple macbook OS X 10.4.x, you must start the computer using an Apple Software Restore disc.

Insert the disc into the computer, restart.

After you hear the startup sound, press and hold the "C" key. Hold the key until you see the gray Apple logo.

Your computer will take longer to startup, be patient, this is completely normal. After the CD or DVD is loaded it will automatically start the OS installer, do not reinstall your OS system!

If you are requested to choose a language, just click the right arrow button (Next).

To open the Disk Utility Click on Utilities > Disk Utility.

Now the Disk Utility window should be open. Choose from the left side of the window the hard drive you wish to repair (in this case Macintosh HD).

Make sure that the First Aid tab is selected.

Click Repair Disk button (bottom right).

The tool will check your hard drive, if it encounters any problems it will list them in the middle of the window, otherwise you'll receive this message - "The volume Macintosh HD appears to be OK".

Once the scan is over if it found problems, click again on Repair Disk, this will try to repair the problems, if not successful you need a more advanced utility tool.

How can i get for free the install disc


  • Hi Angel
    Apple don't put their OS on DVD any more. It's usually downloaded directly from the internet. But, if you live near an Apple Store you could take a USB Memory Stick in the shop and one of the guys could download the installer to the stick.
    You could also try downloading from here www.fenopy.se/?keyword=Mac+OSX+10.5
    If your machine can handle it (CPU 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    or better), get the latest OSX 10.9 Maverics.
    It's now available for free.
    But you may need to use a friends Mac to download off the internet!
    You can also make a bootable USB 32GB memory stick to assist.
    Here www.fenopy.se/?keyword=USB+OSX
    See OSX Lion 10 7 3 USB STick Creator
    To find out more about your Mac Model and all of its capabilities... download a copy of MacTracker.
    Here... www.macupdate.com/app/mac/5968/mactracker
    These days you really must have an external hard drive of at least 1TB or so to keep copies of your files on. Partition the drive into 2or3 parts and keep one (60GB) as a clean OSX emergency boot.
    I always use Carbon Copy Cloner to make a bootable "CLONE" of my PowerBook on my external drive.. That way if you ever get into boot problems you just connect the external boot disk, Restart the Mac, then hold the option key down and choose the external OSX Boot drive that you want to restart from. Then you use the Disk Utility program to fix Permissions & Test your internal Hard Drive.
    I make a "CLONE" at least once a year then test that it boots then I wipe (Format) my internal HD and install clean updated OSX. Reboot and choose the Migration Assistant to put all my data back from the Clone I made.
    Have been doing this for years now. Keeps the Mac software in prime condition.
    Hope All That Makes Sense
    Cheers

Hi, Went to the Mac store to upgrade to Snow Leopard and was told my OS was "way too Old to upgrade to Snow Leopard!" Sorry, I'm a numbskull when it comes to these things. Figured as long as...


Apple recommends that if you wish to go from 10.4 to 10.6 then you should purchase the 10.6 Box Set.

System Requirements to run Snow Leopard:
  • Mac computer with an Intel processor
  • 1GB of memory
  • 5GB of available disk space
  • DVD drive for installation
Snow Leopard Installation Instructions:
  1. Just insert the DVD in the optical drive.
  2. Restart your Mac while holding down the C key.
  3. You will be guided through the installation procedure and be prompted at one point to choose which install option you want.
  4. Once the Snow Leopard install is completed the Mac will restart itself.
  5. You will probably be asked to register with Apple upon restart.
  6. Enjoy Snow Leopard on your Mac!
Q: Can I upgrade directly from Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)?

A: Yes. Apple recommends purchasing the Mac Boxed Set for this purpose, which will also update iLife (it is unknown at the time of this writing whether older versions of iLife work with Snow Leopard) and iWork. Also note that while it has been said that the $29 upgrade will work with 10.4, it is not officially supported and may be in violation of the licensing terms.

Q: What happened to the different install options? Can't I do an Archive & Install?

A: Apple has revamped the familiar installation options for Mac OS X. You now have two choices, either a straight upgrade or a clean install. Supposedly if you choose to do a straight upgrade, what actually goes on behind the scenes is what was traditionally known as an Archive & Install.

Q: Is there anything I can do to better prepare myself for the upgrade?

A: Yes. It is advisable to run a Verify/Repair Permissions and Verify/Repair Disk in Disk Utility. You may also want to run the maintenance tasks in Onyx. And finally, it would be wise to get your applications up to date using a program like AppFresh.

Are you trying to reinstall the operating system? If there is no "destination", perhaps it is looking for a hard drive, and yours has gone bad?

From mac leopard cannot print duplex on minolta qms 3100 printer


Hello, sorry you are having problems,
OK, are you sure your printer supports duplex printing and if you are sure you have the right driver installed, this is how you print in duplex mode on a Mac.
Open the document you want to print, Hit cmd+p to get the print dialogue window you should see this: 46da167.png

Notice you have the option of two sided printing in the same line as # of copies.
If you do not have this option in 10.5.6, then you might have the wrong driver, N.B. you must be sure to select the proper driver when you are creating the printer in the Print and Fax preference. Another way to ensure you have the driver properly installed, go to the manufacturer's website and download the Mac Driver Installer and run the installer, delete the printer you created and then re-create the printer again it should auto-recognize the printer..
What is the Printer Make and Model?

OS X Leopard


If your computer rejects the Mac OS X Installation DVD, it means that there's a good chance that your Mac doesn't have an Apple internal DVD drive or an Apple SuperDrive, you'll need Mac OS X 10.4 Install CDs.

If your mac is unable to read the CD or ejects it also, there's something wrong with your DVD\CD drive.

You might want to try loading the DVD on a second computer that is connected with a fire wire to the first computer.

Good luck.

There should be a program called "Apple Remote Desktop". It is a product made by Apple for just this purpose. Information and the ability to buy it are here:
